Rating Summary
It is 2020 and I'm late to the Clockwork Orange party. I found myself pulled into the film and while the opening scenes were disturbing, I feel it is a reflection on how our society is today but in a subtle tone. We like to consider ourselves civilized and modern while pretending such monstrosities for personal hedonic gratification don't exist.

The story takes place in London in a dystopian future. “Our humble narrator” Alex DeLarge (Malcolm McDowell) and his droogs, Georgie (James Marcus), Dim (Warren Clarke), and Pete (Michael Tarn), are seated in the Korova Milk Bar stoned on milk laced with narcotics. Shortly, the gang leaves the Korova for a night of ultra-violence. They encounter a wino (Paul Farrell) in an underpass, and beat him with their truncheons. Later, they arrive at a derelict theater. On the stage, another gang, led by a rival named Billy Boy, prepare to rape a voluptuous girl. Instead, the two gangs battle it out– Alex and his two droogs are victorious.
